"We Are Now In The Danger Zone": Leading Australian Scientist Tim Flannery on Climate Change and How To Save the Planet


We spend the hour with one of the world's leading scientists studying climate change, Tim Flannery. An Australian mammologist, palaeontologist and field zoologist, he has discovered and named more than thirty new species of mammals.

He has been described as being in the league of all-time great explorers such as David Livingstone. Flannery might be best known as the author of the bestselling book "The Weather Makers: The History and Future Impact of Climate Change."

Earlier this year he was named 2007 Australian of the Year. Tim Flannery recently spoke before a packed crowd at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe New Mexico as part of "Readings and Conversations," a series sponsored by the Lannan Foundation.

Today, Tim Flannery's speech on the environment, how human activity is altering the earth's climate and what we can do to save it.


Where, Ladies and Bruces and everybody else?

Thank you, -hung, for viewing and commenting. Your thoughts about that special picture is what I hoped for. (None of them is fabricated in any way)

I did a search but could not find what I perhaps should have found. Can you give a hint? Sorry if I have been overlooking something important

BTW Ljungberg should be the name, or... ?

Sorry, I've really got the name wrong. It is Bjorn Lomborg. He wrote a book...called the Skeptical Environmentalist.
